The following press release from ReleaseWire put me in mind of a local company that has been doing something similar for a handful of years. Coffee holds a place near and dear to my heart, and I first heard of Sleeve a Message when I worked alongside Tony Trabon, who formerly worked with them. The acknowledgement of “Coffee Cup Advertising” as a sort of “legitimate” or “mainstream” channel seems to reinforce the idea that experiential and guerrilla techniques are becoming more and more commonplace. Soon, brands will take it as a matter of course that they need to be reaching their consumers in delightful and engaging ways.
Hainesport, NJ — (ReleaseWire) — 01/04/2016 — We are “A New Kind of Agency” startup that offers a relatively new form of offline, outdoor, out-of-home advertising space for experiential marketing and promotional brand advertising. In and around convenience stores, coffeehouses and cafes through ad-based hot beverage cup advertising. In exchange for distributing our advertisements, we provide convenience stores, coffeehouses and cafes with FREE hot beverage cups sold with Coffee and Tea.“Coffee Cup Advertising” offers lower cost per message (CPM) rate than almost any other advertising medium. As brand advertisements will be viewed by consumers through 37 minutes of average consumption time. This takes place as they raise your advertisement on the cup to eye level in excess of 20 times to consume the hot beverage. All while the consumer also touches and holds the brand in their hand, while feeling warm and positive. This allows consumers to come to the brand advertiser, rather than utilizing strict outbound advertisement pushing them away. Coffee consumers are very loyal repeat customers. Like outdoor advertising, your ad will be viewed by six other people while in store and out; as they are exposed during its transportation and consumption.Due to a sea change in digital online communication, point of sale (POS) technology and the birth of mobile technology, mechanisms such as a QR Code and Near Field Communications (NFC) that now combine these stakeholder groups with traditional print advertising to transform your brand advertisement on our ad-based hot beverage cups into a virtual advertising machine. By adding a code to our medium vehicle; your marketing team can also track the progress of your campaign. To engage consumers who are directed to your online store, blog or social media site, by the call-to-action (CTA) in the ad the advertiser designs and creates. That ultimately targets the consumer audience you need to reach.
